Catching Rays CAL Week 2

June 13, 2022

Welcome back to week 2 of the Catching Rays Table Runner CAL! Now that you’ve worked up your squares, it is time to join them together. I chose to use the surface sl st method for joining. I love how it provides extra interesting texture on top of the squares. 

If you have not used this method before, watch this video tutorial by Happily Hooked.

If you prefer to join your squares using another method, this is fine, but please review how to layout your squares before joining. 

Let’s begin. 

First, lay out your squares as I have below:

I have placed a number on each square to make it easier to follow as we join. We will work all the squares in a continuous join in a zigzag, then repeat the same method in reverse. 

Begin your surface sl st in the chain on the corner of squares 1&2, surface sl st in each st along the sides of the squares (17 st).

Add in squares 3&4 and continue up the side in the same manner.

Add in square 5 and work along the side of 5&4.

Add in 6&7 and continue working along the sides.

Add square 8 and work along the sides of 8&7.

 Add 9&10 and work along the sides until you come to the 2nd to the last ch.

Fasten off. 

Repeat the same method in the opposite direction. Fasten off and weave in the ends.

That’s it for this week! Come back next week for the final step! 💕Rachel
